would, call a lot of. then president obama and former president bill clinton speak at 10:debbie 5 eastern tomorrow night on c-span. >> we do not have a notion. we do not have the highest mountains. what we have is the maypole image. this is the sugar maple or hard rock maple. it is the trade we use for sugaring. it averages 2% share content until its sap a. what we do to start the season is drill a hole to war and the tree. we need to drill a new hole in a different place every year. this tree here was tapped last spring in 2012. you can i get the spot and. that means the tree is healthy and healing. it will not run sap at that point. next year will vote but to the other side of the tree and drill a hole in a fresh place. here you see 2011 and 2010. i can say, this tree has been on the farm 100 years and enter a row. we do not heard to the trees. -- we do not hurt the trees. >> saturday at noon eastern on "book tv,">> we will have a grea clucks from now until election day, sir brett's will travel to colorado, ohio, iowa, michigan, north carolina, michigan, nevada, va., and wiscons

is bill clinton. his chief of staff was erskine bowles. i voted for that budget because i thought it was a good, bipartisan way to begin the discussion and get our spending under control. yes, i have the courage to stand up for leadership because that was something that they encouraged us not to vote for her, and it was something that was well thought out and was a good first attempt to sit down and discuss how we will get the balanced budget and spending under control. we had the white house from the senate, and they didn't pass the budget for two years. it's reprehensible. that's what i believe. maffei: two major candidates have a lot of wealthy friends. this is pushing an 8 million-dollar race now. a lot of this money has come from super pacs from outside groups, people that don't live here. other washington-based groups, six figures, the conservative 60 plus association, the league of conservation voters, it is running up way high. this one starts with you, if elected. won't you come in fact, be bold and to the people and organizations forgot to elected by paying for all of th
was a little not leave. i thought they would feel the need to do with bill clinton tobias, always answer the -- advised which was always answer the questions from voters -- advised, always answer the question from voters. >> you got the sense that they felt there was so much at stake that they could not afford to not carry out the mission, and in the president's case, to be there, ann romney's case, to continue to be presidential -- and in romney's case, to continue to be presidential. and to have smart answers to questions. >> i like the town hall format. i like the idea of -- of it. i guess the problem is there were many times -- the second question was about gas prices. the first question was neutral, i'm worried i'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on th
of ohio. they're both staying out of sta san sandy's way today. he spent bill clinton and joe biden there instead. romney has canceled tomorrow's events in ohio, but he hit avon lake earlier today. >> people of the entire nation are counting on ohio, because my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president, i'll be the next president of the united states. >> since the conventions romney has held 27 events in ohio over 12 days. i sent ryan there for 19 events and the president has been there seven times for 10 events. no republican has ever won the white house without ohio, no democrat has done it since jfk. ohio is an important state. when we talk about the state we haven't discussed in this table is the importance of a ground game. the having field offices throughout a state and the things that they can do getting people to the polls and getting information about the candidates. obama's lead in the ground game is massive. obama has 800 field offices throughout the nation, romney only has 300. in ohio the difference is massive, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see
's clear. now, by the way president obama in this case has done a terrific job. when we had bill clinton in charge fema strengthened, terrific job. you have to call it as it is. you don't call it -- you don't call it balanced when it's not balanced. everybody remembers what happened under hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the
using. somebody they had put out on their own. not quite the level of bill clinton for obama but not bad. you know. marco rubio and chris christie sort of are the two sort of stars that can get people on their own. and here he is with obama. i tell you, you see him -- here's another sort of fascinating thing to watch. the number of photographs that people asked to take with the two of them, and they kept taking them. what are they going to say? you have these people at the shelter or their homes and they're both emotional, upset, and excited to meet the president and the governor. and here they were posing for pictures together. the two of them. with constituents in new jersey too. that part of it was a little surreal, especially when i sort of remind myself that today's wednesday and election day is, i don't know, not even 200 hours away. >> an extraordinary day. chuck todd, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> you got it. >>> across the river from new york city, hoboken, new jersey remains mostly flooded and mostly without power. as much as a foot of water flooded into the ci
telling jersey to fix its own problems on the state and local level. i'm reminded as well of bill clinton and the dnc framing the selection as a choice between we're all in this together and you're on your own. following a crisis we cannot help but be reminded that no matter how justifiably proud we are of our individual initiative and pioneering spirit, there is no avoiding the fact that we share this earth and this land. you can move to the middle of the desert in nevada, ron paul country out there, off the power grid and with your own water well, and when mother nature rips the desert in two with an earthquake or washes away your possessions right down to the last flag, it's your fellow citizens who will come to your rescue. try as we might to wall ourselves off, we are truly in this together. i am a democrat because we're in this together. our political debate is not between big government and small government. it's between a democratic party that supports effective government properly funded and based on compromise and gop extremist vision of minimalist government that leaves you on
confidence, i think bill clinton told a powerful story at the convention this was going to take some time, but we were on the up tick and that we were headed in the right direction. i think people believe that. >> yeah. clinton has -- president clinton has done a heck of a job. >> isn't he great? >> he has done a heck of a job. >> and they made a big mistake, they set him up as the validater, the referee, he came in and he validated barack obama. >> bob shrum, thank you. >>> up next, the war on voters. find out why citizens are facing a growing threat at the polls. and what you can do to fight back on tuesday. >>> and later, tea party extremism takes its toll on key races. stay tuned. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for staying with us. if you're not worried about the election tonight, this story might change your mind a little bit. voter suppression tactics are ramping up. the advancement project reports ohio secretary of state purged 6,000 names from the voter rolls, 38% of the voters turned out to be legitimate. it is not clear why those voters were singled out. we
